D-List Monsters of Super-Hero Land: The Spook, Part Two

What's that? You'd like to see some examples of unintended homosexual subtext in "Batman" #276 (June, 1976)?

Well, if you insist. (Tomorrow: The Spook, Part Three!)

Didn't The Spook once get involved with the Scooby Gang? I swear, I seem to recall him haunting an ice cream factory as The Pistachio Ghost.

And he would've gotten away with it, too, if not for that meddling millionaire playboy, and that Bat-Hound.

Ah that last panel, that means the Spook is a Poofter, right?

I'm not sure "subtext" is the right word for Commissioner Gordon's impassioned monologue.

And I don't even want to think about what that is sitting on his desk!

Jon: And he wears far too much cologne. Batman tries to bear-hug him, and all he gets is a smothering cloud of Drakkar Noir.

Anonymous: Aside from that thing on his blotter, the Commissioner's desk is refreshingly free of knick-knacks. (A single, well-placed sex toy can say so much.)
